My Five Favorite Christmas Carols


5. "Angels We Have Heard on High"

Come to Bethlehem, and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ the lord, the newborn King.
Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

4. "Silent Night"

Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia;
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born!

3. "What Child Is This?"

Nails, spear shall pierce him through,
The cross be borne for me, for you;
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
The babe, the son of Mary.

2. "O Come, All Ye Faithful"

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning,
Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv'n; 
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing!
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

1. "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing"

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail th'incarnate Deity,
Pleased as man with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmaunuel.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King."
